    The remarkable Gefion Fountain (Danish Gefionspringvandet) is situated near the Little Mermaid, the harbor in Copenhagen.
    He is one of the most beautiful fountains of the city and was designed in 1908 by the artist Anders Bundgaard. The fountain shows
    the statue of the goddess Gefion from Germanic mythology, is said to have transformed her four sons into oxen. The legend says
    the carriage have while plowing in the middle of Sweden's torn a large hole and flung the landmass in the Baltic Sea.

    The hole in Sweden is today the Lake Vänern. The island of Zealand to have arisen from the ripped piece of land.
    On the west side of the fountain is the St. Albans Church of the 19th Century. It is the center of a small Anglican church in Copenhagen.

    Sorry for my bad English!

    Der sehenswerte Gefion Brunnen (dänisch Gefionspringvandet) befindet sich unweit der kleinen Meerjungfrau, am Hafen von Kopenhagen.
    Er zählt zu den schönsten Springbrunnen der Stadt und wurde 1908 von dem Künstler Anders Bundgaard gestaltet. Der Brunnen zeigt
    die Statue der Göttin Gefion aus der germanischen Mythologie, die ihre vier Söhne in Ochsen verwandelt haben soll. Die Sage erzählt,
    das Ochsengespann habe beim Pflügen aus der Mitte Schwedens ein großes Loch gerissen und die Landmasse in die Ostsee geschleudert.

    Das Loch in Schweden bildet heute den Vänern-See. Aus dem herausgerissenen Landstück soll die Insel Seeland entstanden sein.
    Auf der Westseite des Brunnens steht die St. Albans-Kirche aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Sie ist Zentrum einer kleinen anglikanischen Gemeinde in Kopenhagen.

i was there almost 20 years ago! beautiful city, & you did well capturing the energy of the sculpture. by the way, i couldn't believe how small the little mermaid was when i saw it! my brother lived in Holte for a year (just north of Copenhagen) & told me it was not uncommon for thieves and vandals to knock her head off. i don't know if that's still true. hope not.

Okay, now you have me looking at maps of Sweden, and Denmark, comparing the size of the lake and land that goddess Gefion got for plowing the ground with her 4 oxen sons. Quite an interesting story! :) You educate with pictures and stories and spark the interest of all that see. You are a master of intrigue and wonder; forever keeping me entertained and inspired. :tighthug: :) :trophy: :squee:

    Yes, it is almost like in Berlin. The winter has returned this
    week with lots of snow. This photo is from last summer. I have
    to edit so many photos. And I agree with you.
    Copenhagen is a remarkable city! :nod:
